Charlie Kirk: 2020 Democratic Primary Will Be the 'Trump-Hating Olympics'
Charlie Kirk said Monday that he hopes more Democrats announce their bids for the White House because they'll look at being "more extreme" in order to draw attention to themselves.
"It's gonna be what I like to call the 'Trump-hating Olympics,'" said Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA. "They're going to have a competition of seeing who can hate Donald Trump the most."
Kirk said on Fox & Friends First that Democratic hopefuls are trying to gain attention in "bizarre" ways, referencing O'Rourke's Instagram livestream in a dentist's chair and a video in which Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) cracked open a beer.

"I think it will really help the president, and they'll also try to embrace more and more radical policies, which will only further distance themselves from Middle America."
Kirk predicted that a Democrat will "come out of nowhere" to win the nomination, even as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is leading in popularity among the party's potential candidates.
"All of this stuff can change and it's so fluid," he said. "I can't wait for them to start attacking each other, though, because it seems that for the longest period of time, Democrats have just played nice with each other."
